Tema Heat will battle with Tema Community 2 for a spot in the Tema Basketball League Postseason second round in the derby this weekend.
The crunch first round postseason tie will be played at Tema’s Community 4 Court with a three other first round fixtures on the schedule.
Heat placed third in Group B in the regular season behind Community 2 who finished the regular season strong after a shaky start.
C2 grew into a side set up for big games as the team won tough battles against contenders Ghana Navy, leaders Community 4 and Heat.
Heat on the other hand, can parlay its “Dark Horse” tag to spring a surprise on the much fancied Community 2 side should key cogs Gershon Dzovor, Josiah Karikari, Franklin Edem and Kingsley Quist come to the party.
C2 stars Richard Afedzi, Prince Owusu and Kofi Attefah will be looked counted on to clinch the win. C4 is up against Navy in the second Group B tie while Nungua Coldstore takes on Junior Reformers and Ashamian Lions play against Ghana Police in Group A.
